Not unless Red Hat included the necessary core patches...

Any kernel module we build is still tied to the specific kernel it was
built against.

It's just that if we release kernel-2.4.20-18.9sgi1, we can release
xfs-modules-1.3pre1, xfs-modules-1.3pre2, etc against it.

That module still won't have anything to do with a 2.4.9 ES kernel.

So you can change the xfs module that loads into a given kernel, but you
can't throw any old kernel against a given xfs module.  :)
